Inside Israel's hostage rescue: Secret plans and a deadly 'wall of fire'

JERUSALEM - It was a busy weekend morning in the market at the Nuseirat refugee camp, Osama Abu Asi recalled. Fighting could be heard in the distance, but it didn't keep away the shoppers, who perused the few bags of flour and sugar he had spread on his blanket.

Abu Asi said he did not know that nearby, in an apartment one floor above the street, sat a young dark-haired woman known around the world - last seen in a viral video clip being driven into Gaza on the back of motorcycle on Oct. 7, screaming, "Don't kill me!"

She was Noa Argamani, one of 250 Israeli hostages taken captive by Hamas.
